and that's why he will not bring it to the floor. but california senator dianne feinstein who authored the bill says she has been promised a vote and plans to introduce the assault weapons portion of the bill as an amendment. >> this is very important to me. i do not want to lay down and play dead. the american people has said it had every public pulled up the support this legislation is aimed to protect children, schools, shopping malls. to dry up the supplies of these over time. >> reporter: while the assault weapons portion of the package is in limbo, it. is. likely the senate will vote on three other measures. a ban on hi capacity ammunition clips, legislation calling for universal background checks, and stiffer penalties for gun trafficking. now it is those three measure, that make gun control advocates hopeful, though they remain disappointed about the assault weapons part of the bill. more on that coming up tonight on kron 4 news at 6. >> catherine: more bay area news -- an accident closed all lanes on a connector ramp from i-80 to 101 in san francisco. this is video from our he

they would not even try to do that. the bill's sponsor, dianne feinstein today said she was told her assault weapons bill will be dropped by the senate democrats when they move their package on to the senate floor for a vote. now, if this seems weird or inconsistent, you're right. it is a little weird and inconsistent. the initial strategy of the democrats on gun issues was to move everything a la carte, so maybe you don't like the ban, but that shouldn't stop you for voting for an increase or background bill. so if you object to one part, you can still support the rest of it. that was the strategy at first. the strategy at the committee level, but now that they are past the committee level and on to the next step apparently, a la carte is over and the one bill will not include the ban. so you can fire dozens of rounds. senate democrats are not even going to try. what will be in the bill is still an unanswered question. but democrats aren't going to try for a limit on extended magazines. what about background checks? the group mayors against illegal guns released this ad today to try to keep
well know, where the chair, dianne feinstein, the sponsor on the judiciary committee of the assault weapon ban, basically sent ted cruz back to school for his approach and his challenge to run constitutional grounds. but here was wayne lapierre today speaking to cpac. >> the vice president of the united states actually told women facing an attack, to just empty their shotguns into the air. honestly, have they lost their minds over at the white house? >> do you have any response to mr. lapierre? >> i think that mr. lapierre -- public handling of the aftermath of newtown has been amply ann analyzed and discussed and has not been particularly helpful for his cause or the more important cause, which is reducing gun violence in america and i think that's an assessment that is widely held. what we need are partners in a cause that should not divide democrats from republicans, because the victims of gun violence are not democrats or republicans, they're americans and sometimes they are six and 7-year-old americans. the president believes we need to take steps, common-sense steps that reduc
dianne feinstein says instead of being included in the measure, it will be offered as an amendment. 157 different assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines that would no longer be lawful. the decision means the ban stands little chance of passing because of solid opposition from republicans and democrats in the senate and it's believed to have less of a chance in the house, but this is a decision made by those who control the senate and democrats today. well, a stunning new report shedding light on the growing retirement crisis in america. get this: it's a survey released by the employee benefit research institute and they've concluded that some 57% of those surveyed have less than $25,000 in savings. and these are folks that are going to retire, less than 25 grand in the bank, and a record high of 28% have no confidence they will be able to retire at all. how did we get here? melissa francis is host of "money with melissa francis" on the fox business network, and chris plante of the host of the chrisplante show and leslie marshall and you think how scary that must be for t

and paint it before you get there. >> well, maybe so. yesterday, senator feinstein said the assault weapons ban is not going to be part of the bill. that's something you've been predicting for a while. i've been talking about for a couple weeks now. what are the chances we see it as added as an amendment possibly down the road. >> there's no doubt there'll be efforts to add it, i think this is the official death of the assault weapons ban. it's harry reid conceding it can't be part of the main bill. they're trying to focus on what is doable. what can they get done in april? and what they think can get done would be universal background checks, including for private transactions. if i was going to sell you a gun that doesn't have to be any sort of background check on that under a bill being knocked around in the senate, you would have to have some validation there before that purchase could be made. and that's the sticking point right now. that's a far cry from what democrats were talking about two or three months ago. that's a pretty small, narrow provision in the scope of all the big gun c
of opposition, and that bill, senator feinstein's assault weapons bill passed on a party line vote in the committee. but because it's tough isn't a reason not to move forward. i don't think we need anymore reason to motivate us than newtown. >> the committee meeting turned a little testy. i want to play this exchange for you viewers. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment and the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> i'm not a sixth grader. i've been on this committee for 20 years. i thank you for the lecture. incidentally, this does not prohibit -- you use the word prohibit. it exempts 2,271 weapons. isn't that enough? >> what can we expect to see and hear in the senate when that bill reaches the floor? >> well, unfortunately you're going to hear a lot more of the same that you just heard from senator cruz. a lot of it patronizing, as i think that exchange was. unfortunately, misapprehension what the second amendment prohibits. there i
